Animals are very much a part of our inclusive programme at Botany Downs Kindergarten. Ascione (2004, p. 10) states that "the humane treatment of animals leads people to treat each other with greater civility, respect and kindness". These are just the values we want children to come to embrace at kindergarten. So... it was time at the end of term to celebrate Franklinʻs 3rd birthday. The cakes were made (thanks to Sophie, Olivia and Rubin), the ambience was created and the party began. What a turtle of a time we had.
